Country starlet Jana Kramer’s “Thirty-One” is the third high-charting debut of the week, finishing at No. 10 with 22,000 units moved in its first week. Kramer’s second album is her first top-10 release.

The holdovers are led by the Weeknd’s “Beauty Behind the Madness,” which finished its seventh week on the chart at No. 3. The R&B crooner moved 77,000 units in the time frame, up 5% from the previous week.

Fetty Wap held steady at No. 4, with his self-titled debut album moving 53,000 units, down 17% in its third week. Drake and Future’s collaboration, “What a Time to Be Alive,” also slid. “WATTBA” ended its fourth week at No. 5, moving 49,000 units, down 25%.

Taylor Swift’s “1989” closed its 50th week on the chart with steady sales, moving 37,000 units, good for sixth place. The singer’s music video for “Blank Space” was named the most-watched video on Vevo on Wednesday, clocking more than 1.2 million views.

Luke Bryan’s “Kill the Lights” popped up to No. 7 from No. 9, up 5% from the previous week with 31,000 units moved. Janet Jackson’s “Unbreakable,” which debuted at No. 1 the week before, dropped to No. 8; the R&B icon’s latest dipped 74%, moving 30,000 units.
